An old 2012 thread created by Bill Mattocks about Frank Demaria was recently resurrected. It got me wondering what other schools/instructors are doing to prevent such liability/actions. Do you incorporate a New Student Application requiring a signed release of liability? How accurately does it represent the potential contact to a student? Do you meet and discuss the likelihood of contact with parents? Do you include visuals of certain drills to help parents understand what they may see? (I do) What about things like open locker rooms with mixed ages? Drop off/pick up procedures? How do you address contact and hands-on drills if at all? Do you require any internal or external training of assistant instructors? Such as background checks, child training, instructor classes, etc... Do you hold an insurance policy for liability, LLC, or incorporate? If you insure, what are you limits? If you LLC or incorporate, what is excluded in your verbiage? Any and all preventive measure tools and ideas are extremely helpful everyone teaching.
